Hot Toys Reveals 1/6 Scale Chitauri Commander And Footsoldier Figures From ‘The Avengers’
Two flavors of Chitauri -- Marvel's space mummy knight-looking alien monster guys from The Avengers movie -- are on the way in 2014 from Hot Toys. Yes, 1/6th scale versions of the Chitauri Footsoldier and its boss the Chitauri Commander will arrive in the coming year, just in time to get taken down alongside their leader Loki by fans' Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Man, Agent Coulson and Nick Fury figures.
Both the footsoldier and the commander figures feature movie-accurate sculpts and accessories, including extra hands, their funky energy guns and respective diorama stages with rubble pieces. Just don't leave them sitting around after battles unattended for too long or your more civilian toys might go all Item 47 on you.
Though a specific release date hasn't quite been pinned down past "July 2014," it's safe to assume that only those with SHIELD budgets will be able to army build with these figures, which will be sold separately for roughly $240 -- for both the footsoldier and the commander -- and as part of a special Chitauri Footsoldier and Chitauri Commander Collectible Set for $474.99. It's worth noting that the collectible set comes with the Chitauri's bladed weapon and that the others stick to their guns, so-to-speak.
